up, carol, that is a struggle to get down and up those stairs to get supplies. so that's where we're going to start to see people really start to -- i wouldn't say panic, but nerves are certainly frayed, for sure. >> i've got to tell you, my home is in baltimore, and when the sun finally came out yesterday, i just ran outside. i just wanted to feel the sun again. so just the fact that the sun is out in new york city must be kind of uplifting. >> reporter: it is. people in good spirits again today. and a lot of people coming over from brooklyn, at least some of them, actually have power. so it's easier to be smiling in that respect. but, again, the longer we go into this power outage, and the colder the temperatures get and the more we get into this, okay, this little adventure of not having to go to work and being without power is over, now it's really become an inconvenience, and eventually for the weaker, it's a matter of survival so a more serious situation. so the pressure certainly is on con-ed.
